When they pulled down the statues
Of the slave traders
Did they pull down the house
Of the slave traders?
When the statues hit the ground with a thud
Did the house of the slave trader’s fall?
Are pre-judgements a dead end
When cases at law are a long train?
People become slaves to their debts
To pay for their mortgages and to pay for their rents
So slavery exists in many ways
And most of all it exists as sin
Did they try to bring down a statue of sin?
But sin is not a statue that they can bring down
The fallen statue is left on the ground
But they all walk away with debts to pay
